ONE OF THE NICE THINGS ABOUT BEING IN THE GROWN-UP PARTY...:

Why Jeb Bush's Nod Is the Beginning of the End of the Primary Race (ALEX ROARTY, 3/21/12, NATIONAL JOURNAL)

It's the ninth inning of the Republican presidential primary, and Mitt Romney just brought his ace closer into the game. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's support of the GOP front-runner, one of the race's most coveted endorsements, sends an unequivocal message to Republicans everywhere that after a long, bitter primary fight, it's time to unite behind Romney as the party's presidential nominee.

Bush's imprimatur won't strong-arm conservative insurgent Rick Santorum out of the race, but, coming a day after Romney's commanding victory in the Illinois primary, his support leaves the ex-senator from Pennsylvania suddenly in desperate need of another primary victory to maintain credibility.

...is the discipline they demonstrated in holding off the Jeb endorsement until Mitt had won the race himself.
